Magnecord

 

Magnecord, Inc. was founded in Chicago, IL in 1946 by 5 men who worked for the Research Division of Illinois Institute of Technology. They were R.L.Landon, John S. Boyers, R.J. Tinkham and C.G. Barker. Original founders of Magnecord reel tape recorders

Through Chris at Preservation Sound, we were able to connect with Dave Boyers the son of John Boyers (left in the 1940's) who is the only remaining founder of Magnecord.  John Boyers is 96 (2012).  Dave provided us with numerous items about his Dad's company and we are sharing much of that information here as well as in our 7 hour 3 DVD set about sound recording and our vintage recording collection.

Here is a wonderful summary about Magnecord written by John Boyers (seen to the left in2012 looking at Phantoms DVD set) - view pdf

Magnecord's first product was the professional wire recorder SD-1 - SD ="Super Duper"

Magnecord's first product was the professional wire recorder SD-1 - SD ="Super Duper"(left).  However the company quickly moved to produce reel tape recorders beginning with the PT series.  View movie of Magnecord employees working on the SD-1 in 1947.

In 1949 they had 90 employees and were doing $90,000 a month in business.

Many folks are not aware that many of the professional reel tape recorders that Ampex and Magnecord produced were "data" or "instrumentation" recorders.

The US Defense Department and NSA were early adapters. Here's a declassified document from the NSA detailing the development of magnetic tape recording with NSA. Here's an excerpt from the NSA document

 

1951 Magnecord reel tape recorder brochure in the Reel2ReelTexas vintage recording collection"In the quarter-century following the end of World War ll, the role of magnetic recorders in COMINT activities went from that of nonexistence to being an essential, critical component. During this era magnetic tape recorder technology moved through 1970 ad for the Magnecord/Telex Lab Series 2001 professional reel to reel tape recorder in the Reel2ReelTexas.com MOMSR vintage recording collectionmuch the same sort of ferment and rapid advancement that computers demonstrated in the succeeding generation.: At base, the tape recorder made possible the off-line, riot-real-time processing of intercepted signals. As the quantity of targeted signals increased arid theri structures became more sophisticated and more complex, the necessity for equally sophisticated, complex analysis and processing at NSA Washington and other rear-echelon locations became absolute". Read declassified document from the NSA

 

In 1956, Midwestern Instruments (later known as TELEX), a six-year-old Tulsa, Oklahoma, company that made geophysical instrumentation, acquired Magnecord

Last reel tape recorder manufactured in the late 1960's

Telex was acquired by Memorex in 1988 and went out of business in the mid-1990's.

John Boyers one of the original founders of Magnecord in 2012On September 29, 2012 we were saddened to receive word from Dave Boyers, that his Dad John Boyers, the last Magnecord founder, had passed away. 

Here is Dave Boyers' message.

"Gentlemen,

The last remaining founder of Magnecord, Inc. has now passed into history. Dad has wanted to go be with my mother for some time now, suffering the ravages of Alzheimer's for several years. His wishes were finally granted.

To the degree he could understand it, it has been no small measure of pride that so many people have come to know and appreciate the work he did half a century ago to further the art and science of audio recording.

Similarly, the work all of you do to keep the memory of those early pioneers alive is not only worthwhile, but also gives others like Dad a sense that the efforts they made are not forgotten.

Best wishes to you all, db"

The Magnecord SD-1 was the only truly professional wire recorder manufactured. It never went into mass production as Magnecord followed the trend moving into magnetic tape reel to reel tape recorders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                        

Hanna, Phil. "U. S. Youth Still Shows Courage and Ingenuity." Chicago Daily News, July 29, 1946, p. 22. 1952 ad for the Magnecord reel to reel tape recorder in the Reel2ReelTexas.com MOMSR vintage recording collection

"Those who think this generation of American youth has lost some of the traditional courage and ingenuity of the nation's builders ought to acquaint themselves with the five young 'partners' in Magnecord, Inc., 304 W.63rd st. Here one sees two former combat correspondents in the Pacific and three electronic technicians teamed up. They've started manufacturing special purpose high fidelity wire recording machines for radio station recording, motion picture producing and other scientific work. Among other products is an anti-wire tapping device. After a message is put on a wire recorder, the device 'scrambles' the message as it is being transmitted. That makes it unintelligible. At the receiving end the device 'unscrambles' the message, and the recording 'plays' the message properly.

Magnecord, Inc., is operating under a license from the Armour Research Foundation along with 30 other licensees. But the other licenses are devoting themselves to mass-produced wire recorders for home and office use, while these boys are looking toward demands from the technical and professional field. Their recorder is designed for special, high-grade work, such as recording unusual sound phenomena in research laboratories.

R. J. Tinkham, president, is an Armour Research man and a graduate of the University of Illinois. He is an acoustical engineer, did research work on wire recorders and other special devices for the Bureau of Ordnance, U.S.N., during the war. , John S. Boyer chief engineer, another Armour man, did research on underwater sound devices at the New London (Conn.) laboratory of Columbia University. He also did research work on radar at the radiation laboratory of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Frederick A. Baxter, secretary, and C. G. Barker, sales manager, were war combat correspondents in the Pacific for three years; made the first combat wire recording at Mount Tapotachu on Saipan; made the first recordings for Army air shows. Their recordings were sent to the United States for use by radio stations and to Honolulu for conversion into wax records which were distributed over the United States. Barker worked at Armour Research Foundation prior to forming Magnecord. R. L. Landon, another Armour man, fifth member of the 'Five Horsemen,' is production manager. He worked on atomic bomb research at the University of Chicago and had war plant production experience. . . ."

Hanna, Phil. "Recorders Pay Off For 5 Young Men." Chicago Daily News, Nov. 30, 1949, p. 42.

"Back in July, 1946, I wrote about five young fellows who worked for the Research division of Illinois Institute of Technology. They set up shop at W. 63d st., to make a special purpose high-fidelity wire recorder. Their youthful enthusiasm for going into business on their own was notable. I had an idea they would succeed. So the other day I checked up to see what they had done in three and a half years on their own.

Like so many new firms, they altered their product in May, 1948. They are selling a tape recorder to broadcasting stations and other professional users. They tell me all national radio networks use their machines; that of a total of 3,000 professional users, they have 2,300 machines in use. They say they are doing special work for such firms as the Bell Telephone Laboratories.

The little firm, known as Magnecord Inc., has outgrown the 63d st. location with 2,000 square feet. It is now housed at 225 W. Ohio st. with 9,000 square feet. They have 90 employees compared with 12 at their former location, are doing $90,000 a month in sales. R. J. Tinkham, 38, is president. Their success is helped along by a vigorous sales policy. C. G. Barker, 28, sales manager, says that no matter how good your product, it has to be sold by intensive solicitation. He doesn't believe in the 'better mousetrap' theory. He set up 11 regional factory representatives and 106 distributors, and says business is especially good in the Southeast - that Georgia is booming. J. S. Boyer, 34, is chief engineer. He has four other young engineers constantly working to better the product. R. L. Landon, 32, is production manager, which rounds out about the most closely knit top organization I have recently seen. F. A. Baxter, the fifth of the original group, left the organization.

'Don't think we didn't have our troubles,' says Tinkham - 'we know what a 70-hour week is. But Chicago firms helped, the bank helped - and now we can see daylight.' A net worth of $121,000 seems to confirm."

Ruth Werner Finlay -worked for Magnecord

July 28, 2016  Name of sender: Cassie 0'Mara

Hello. I wanted to take a moment to send a deeply heartfelt thanks for the Magnecord website. My mother, Ruth Werner Finlay, worked as the secretary to the President in the late 40's and always spoke about her time at Magnecord so fondly. To find a photo of her today on the website was wonderful but to see the video was overwhelming. She passed away in February after a long and happy life. I can't tell you how much it means to our family to know this footage exists. Thank you so very, very much!

 


Cassie, I got cc’d by Martin T. on his reply to you.

My Father was John Boyers, one of the founding fathers of Magnecord. I have a large library of Magnecord documentation, and I will search through it to see if there’s anything about your Mom.

Like you, I am amazed that Martin has taken so much time and effort to recognize the work of all the Magnecord people. Before his death, Dad was very pleased to be so warmly remembered on Martin’s web site.

The presidency of Magnecord was sort of “passed around”, as I recall, so who was what when is a bit of a mystery. When my father was president, his secretary was a lady named Barbara Snapp. Perhaps you heard her name mentioned at some point? Everyone called her “Snappy”.

I’ll get back to you as soon as I have a chance to paw through all the old records.

Cheers, Dave

Dear Martin,

Thank you so much for responding! I've attached the thumbnail photo of my mom from your website. She was, I think, 23 at the time. Growing up, we heard stories of my dad waiting outside the gold doors at 360 North Michigan Ave., the London Guarantee and Accident Building, for my mom before they were married. She always talked about what a happy time it was. She loved her boss (perhaps Tink Tinkham?) and meeting celebrities of the day. Like you, the first thing that struck me in the film was how much everyone genuinely enjoyed their work and each other!

I wish I would have discovered the film before she passed away. She would have gotten such a kick out of it! And I would, of course, loved to have heard more about her time at Magnecord. Please give our very best to Dave Boyers and let him know what a wonderful impact he and his father had on my mother's life.

My sister, Karen, is the family archivist and may have more photos from that time. She is as excited as I am and will write to you shortly. (My aunt, Marianne Nord Werner, also worked for Magnecord from 1953-56!)

In case you're interested, here is a link to my mom's obit. While working for Magnecord, she went a blind date with my date and the rest, as they say, is history!

My mom was every bit as sweet and funny as she appears in the video. That moment captured her so beautifully. What an incredible gift you've given us! Thank you again, Martin, so much.

Yours,
Cassie

P.S. My sister posted the link to the MOMSR website on Facebook yesterday along with the video. So many people -- 100 so far -- have commented and have been as amazed as we are!


Martin,

Attached are two pictures from the late 1960’s showing the two-channel version of the PT-6. These were the workhorse voice recorders used by the Army Security Agency, the Naval Security Group, and the USAF Security Service. We were all NSA SIGINT activities.

I repaired these from 1967 until 1974 (Berlin, Germany; Sinop, Turkey; and Shu Linkou, Taiwan). They were very solid performers. The main problems I can remember were the tension on the reels had to be frequently adjusted because our operators would rewind with their fingers, and the pinch roller solenoid often lost its grip. This was solved in 1969 be putting a little graphite in the solenoid every 28 days. The only problems I remember with the amplifiers were an occasional tube going bad.

These records could also be operated with a foot switch.

I enjoyed repairing these and got lots of practice!
